CVE-2015-3291 at MITRE

Description

arch/x86/entry/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel before 4.1.6 on the x86_64 platform does not properly determine when nested NMI processing is occurring, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (skipped NMI) by modifying the rsp register, issuing a syscall instruction, and triggering an NMI.

Note from the SUSE Security Team

This problem existed since around Linux Kernel 3.3 and so does likely not affect SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 or older kernels. It also has minimal impact on the system, loss of NMIs can likely only affect the attacker itself. Due to difficulty of backport we do not plan to this minor issue.
